Today the lovely Charlotte of Musha-Moi will be guest posting. She has been kind enough to share an original post from her ‘Re-Buy or Buh-Bye?’ series. She will be reviewing the Avon Anew Rejuvenate Revitalizing 2-in-1 Gel Cleanser – enjoy!
Up until about a year ago I’ve been quite happy washing my face with soap…I know..shock horror… I actually washed my face with soap! In my defence though didn’t get what al the fuss was about when people would vow never to wash their face with a bar of soap – soap is for cleaning…my face needed cleaning…soap seems like a pretty viable product to use. around about a year ago my sister became an Avon rep and introduced me to the wonders of Anew products (yes they’re anti-ageing and yes I’m only 24 but I’m not going to get into the whole “why use anti-ageing products?’ thing now). She gave me a little starter kit of Anew Rejuvinate products, the kit is marketed as a 2 week trial kit with enough of the products to use everyday, morning and night (they are very generous with the sizes as I managed to make mine last at least 4 weeks using it religiously!). The cleanser is the same consistency as shower gel and it has small beads in it, the directions say to work a small amount into damp skin until the beads dissolve, it produces a good foam and you can feel it working on your skin almost immediately! It makes it tingle slightly (but not in a cooling menthol way as some cleansers do) it’s hard to explain but it just feels like you can feel it lifting all the nasties from your skin.
After rinsing it off my skin feels smoother and softer and any spots that may be brewing feel slightly reduced (it doesn’t stop spots coming to a head if they do develop but it does help reduce the dull ache you sometimes get from the particularly nasty ones).
Re-Buy or Buh-Bye? Re-Buy – I LOVE this cleanser! I’ve just finished my last tube of it and already have another on order, I’m trying to work my way through my sample drawer at the moment and have a few other cleansers to try out but I can’t wait to get back to using this!
